Have you ever seen a picture of yourself and absolutely hated it? I have. There are times when I've seen a side profile of my face and wondered how I didn't know my nose was as big as the photo suggested it was. Sure, all the bad photos we see of ourselves represent a part of us but that doesn't mean we need to capture our worst angles and hold them still for all to dissect. One of my favorite things about portrait photography is the challenge in finding my subjects most beautiful angles. What's the point of nailing the lighting and composition of a photo if the subject isn't happy with how they look? There is none.
When I first saw a photo of Emily I fell in love with her face. She's such a babe. Emily has one of those faces where a different point of view can drastically change the look of her face. In fact, when I met her in person I couldn't believe how different she looked compared to the photos I had previously seen of her. Throughout the shoot I found myself constantly zooming in on her face trying to capture those angles I could see in person that left me in awe. My favorite shots of the day ended up being head and shoulder shots for that very reason.
